Vicky's 2nd Growing Post

Question 1.
1) The strategies were need?
The strategies that were need to use were either money, ratio table, double number line. or clocks.

2. How did you use these strategies?
I used ratio table to solved my answers.

3) Or how could you have used these strategies?
I dont think theres any better way to solved this problem. Using a ratio table is the best way to do it.

4) How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix?
Use a ratio table,
5) Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

QUESTION 2
You are going to create a voicethread explaining the strategies you used on your test.
You need to choose 4 out of the 6 questions.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 =
2. 6/5 - 11/10=
3. 3/5 + 2/7 =
4. 1/6/+1/9 =
5. 5/6 - 1/4 =
6. 3 3/5 - 1 4/5 =

I recommend the following. Choose your 4 questions. On plain pieces of white paper redo them like you did on your test. Make sure your drawings are large enough. Take a picture of them and save them to your desktop. Upload these images to

At voicethread you need to describe what you did to solve the problems. How did you use clocks, money etc to solve the questions. You need a minimum of 2 comments on each picture.Here is a video explaining how to make a voicethead and embed it into your post. You should have both of these questions done by the end of the weekend.

I Choosed
2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5, 5/6 - 1/4, 1/6/+1/9, and 3/5 + 2/7.

Question 3
Here is your 3rd growing post question.Today in class we reviewed the 6 strategies from the RACE Investigation. They were
~Equivalence
~Fractions show operations
~Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)
~Measurement
~Partial Products or the Distributive Property
~The Whole Matters
~Friendly Fractions

Create a voicethread or write and use pictures to describe how you would uses those strategies to explain how far the two students would have run if Mark ran 7/8 and Rachel ran 11/12 of the RACE course.

R.A.C.E COURSE

Question 4

Your last question deals with pizza. You need to explain which group gets the largest portion of pizza. All student groups get the same sized pizzas. It is up to you to cut them up so that they are shared equally.

Group 1 Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.

How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
